I had already created a pdf file using a trick recently discussed on 
Mac OS X Hints, the pdf views fine in previewer but prints incorrectly. 
  I don't have this problem with documents produced by any other 
application, however, I suspect the Linux server is messing with 
things.  When I have time I'll see if I can isolate the problem further 
by removing the Linux server from the problem.

Any references to other discussions about white letters in black boxes 
would be greatly appreciated.
